Description

Our annual Grain Place Foundation Field Day gives guests an opportunity to tour our pioneering farm and grain processing plant near Marquette, Nebraska, and to hear insights and updates about the state of organics in the US. This year, we've gone virtual, which means you can get an up-close view of the farm without leaving your home!

Our 10am (Central) Field Day Tour gives you a chance at a first-hand view of the Vetter family's long-term experiment in organic farming at The Grain Place. See our 9-year field rotation up close, including crop rotation and grazing. We are excited to share some new experiments we are working on, including new permaculture work and the pasturing of some of our pigs. We are eager to show and share what we have been learning about farming for the health of the soil. Whether it’s your introduction to organic farming or a chance to look with a lifetime of experience, we are eager to have you as a part of our farm tour. The tour also includes Grain Place Foods, the on-site organic grain processing facility. For the first time ever, we are able to invite you in to see the plant while it's operating!

At 11am, we will welcome Brise Tencer as our keynote speaker. Brise is Executive Director of the Organic Farming Research Foundation. Her talk will be followed by a panel discussion of the local application/impact of the work of OFRF. Bill Whitney of the Prairie Plains Resource Institute and Graham Christensen of GC Resolve will serve on the panel.

In addition, we are pleased to be able to show and share art from area photographer Sarah Bailey during our Field Day.

Our Field Day brings together farmers, local people interested in organics, industry leaders and much more. When you choose to be a part of Field Day, you become a part of the farm community, even as we gather virtually.

Registration is FREE, and gives you access to live participation in the Field Day, including Q&A opportunities.
